Nah, I'm just not explaining myself very well.
Basically, I think the IDEA of Boba Fett and the bounty hunters is much cooler than the USE of them in the movies. They are introduced as they total badass, bloodthirsty killers, but we never see most of them again, and even Boba Fett never gets to be a badass. The only thing he actually does right is track the Millennium Falcon to Cloud City. Beyond that, he needs Vader to help him capture Han, he never captures Luke, and is disposed of pretty quickly on Tatooine.
In a 2 hour movie, you might be able to give him some Mission Impossible styled mission, but you aren't going to learn much about him. In a TV series, they can create a much longer and more interesting story arc for Boba Fett (and the other bounty hunters) in order to flesh out what is a pretty two-dimensional character.
